Introducing your baby to new food is sure to be an exciting time, afterall, there’s a whole world of flavours, textures and smells to explore. Here at Morrisons, we’ve created a library of recipes for you to rely on, featuring quick and healthy options to cook up for your little one.
A lot of the recipes in our collection feature frozen ingredients, such as frozen fruit and veg. Using frozen can be a real time-saver, as they take the all too time-consuming peeling and chopping out of the preparation equation.
Using frozen food also means you can have better control over food waste. You can simply use the quantity you need and pop the remainder back in the freezer for next time, saving you time, food and money.
Broccoli and Cauliflower Puree
This quick and tasty puree is a great source of iron and vitamin C. Simply boil the vegetables until they’re tender, and puree in a blender. To adjust the texture, add either boiled cooled water or your baby’s usual milk. If you have any leftover, you can simply store it in small pots or an ice cube tray and freeze.
Smashed Avocado and Banana Puree
Creamy and delicious, this recipe doesn’t require any cooking. Simply allow the avocado to defrost, before blending or mashing it together with the banana. You can keep any leftovers in the fridge, but as avocado and banana can turn brown quite quickly, this puree is best eaten fresh.
Apple and Blueberry Puree
A deliciously fruity puree, this recipe is great eaten alone, or if your little one is ready to try new textures, try dipping banana stick in. You could even add the puree to cereal or porridge for a hearty breakfast for older children.
Chop up the apple and place in a saucepan with the blueberries and boil in water for about 10 minutes until soft. Pour into a bowl and stir until cool. Any leftovers can be frozen and enjoyed at a later date.
